Group Financial Controller

Fjord is incredibly proud to be partnering with a large, international business based London to hire a Group Financial Controller. We are looking for someone from a FTSE 250 background, or similar, with the drive and tenacity to operate in a complex environment.


Reporting to the Group CFO, the Group Financial Controller will be responsible for the Group Reporting, Group Tax, Finance Shared Services and Financial Planning and Analysis functions. You will also have some ERP systems implementation experience. 


Coming into this role, you will face several challenges that will need to be managed in the first 12 to 18 months — namely, the continuation of the ERP systems implementation, and subsequent embedding into the organisation. You will also be responsible for shining a light on the FP&A piece and developing team and business capabilities.


You must have a record of success leading large finance teams and can understand core drivers in a fast-moving, dynamic business. You will have strong planning skills with a robust accounting and control background. 


On top of the technical skill set, you must demonstrate the correct behaviours that will make you successful. The ability to build relationships with senior business leaders across functions is integral, as well as strong influencing skills and a strong focus on change management. Emotional resilience and a can-do attitude are also crucial.
